Which Secret Garden Will You Tend?

“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, 
as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice 
which secret garden we will tend… 
when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives 
but are grateful for the abundance that’s present— 
love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature 
and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure— 
the wasteland of illusion falls away 
and we experience Heaven on earth.” 
~ Sarah Ban Breathnach ~

Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves

Quotes of the day... 9/10/14

Be careful what you water your dreams with. 
Water them with worry and fear 
and you will produce weeds 
that choke the life from your dream. 
Water them with optimism and solutions 
and you will cultivate success. 
Always be on the lookout for ways 
to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. 
Always be on the lookout 
for ways to nurture your dream.
      ~ Lao Tzu

We are like the spider. 
We weave our life and then move along in it. 
We are like the dreamer 
who dreams and then lives in the dream. 
This is true for the entire universe.
      ~ Upanishads

Cherish your visions and your dreams, 
as they are the children of your soul, 
the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.

Quotes of the day 9/9/14

You never know what's around the corner. 
It could be everything. Or it could be nothing.

and then one day you look back 
and you've climbed a mountain.
     ~ Tom Hiddleston

If you can see your path laid out 
in front of you step by step, 
you know it's not your path. 
Your own path you make
with every step you take. 
That's why it's your path.
     ~ Joseph Campbell
